The new design is very beautiful but doesnt look like an almost 600-meter tall skyscraper.

If the pyramid-shaped proposal had been built, 40 floors would be too little for a 1947-foot-high building. If the 80-story cylindrical tower were built, they should build a 1947-foot observation tower along with it.

Pakistan is near to a civil war, IO heard from different newspapers. Can't imagine that anyone will build a skyscraper at that moment. But i would be pleased being surprised!

I am hoping this building will get built regardless of the happenings around islambad, maybe the completed structure will be a symbol of hope and new start after the the country stabilizes..

Need to clarify two things.

1. There is nothing remotely close to civil war going on in pakistan. There usually is some friction and blame-game during elections. Once they are over (feb 18) everything would be normal. Its not the first time we have witnessed these political times.

2. That karachi metro map is more of someones enthusiastic effort to make a map but i do not think its anything official( I am not sure though).

And "Duz" does not mean under in urdu.

The Port tower complex project is approved but may take some time to kick off. Then there are some environment concerns and some reclamation to be done. But it would much clearer after the elections. Also its a huge project(since now its part of the karachi waterfront) that will go in phases.
